It's happening.
Author: Raine    Date: 03/26/2018 13:08:26

Things are happening out there. I'm terribly sad on one hand that so many had to leave their homes on Saturday, but so damn grateful they did.

Being in a sea of humanity crying, screaming, praying, laughing, whispering and demanding change is the stuff that can lift souls. One of the MSD students said of the rally on Saturday, 'this was a great way to start a marathon'.

I've been marching & protesting since I was 18. I'm 50 now. Saturday was the very first time I felt like I was supporting those who will carry the torch. They got this, we are going to have the change we need.


There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side
It's s time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

We better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Songwriters: Stephen Stills

Morning Comrades.

Gentle readers may want to use discretion when clicking on this link. Yes, it's quite graphic.


What say you, Rick Santorum?



Former Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Rick Santorum told CNN Sunday that kids seeking stronger gun control laws should instead be "taking CPR classes" to deal with school shooters.

"How about kids instead of looking to someone else to solve their problem, do something about maybe taking CPR classes or trying to deal with situations that when there is a violent shooter that you can actually respond to that," Santorum said on "State of the Union."


The things I want to say about this will probably get me a knock on the door from the FBI or Secret Service...so I won't say them.

Who needs to go that far? This is the guy who brought the world the wonders of man-on-dog and a jarred miscarried fetus on his mantle. If that kinda shit doesn't destroy his credibility on any subject what would?

Phishing call?

Probably just blind telemarketing. I mean if they were phishing, they'd at least know I don't own a car!

Hello bloggers!!

I didn't march Saturday as I went to a memorial service for a friend's brother.

However, I've been very encouraged by what I have seen. May this be the moment when change happens.

It looks like the National Enquirer is really carrying the water for the Trump crime family. Hopefully, Karen McDougal can sue the pants off him (hopefully not literally).

Doing okay. I vented a little at a friend of mine who used to work at Web. So, she understands their special bullshit. So that helped. Finally told my mom. My brother who is finally on Facebook called me after he saw my post about being laid off :D. My brother, people!

I'm taking a couple of days for self-care and to decompress.

Did anyone see that Stormy Daniels tweet, when asked what snacks should someone eat when watching the interview, her response: tacos and mini corn dogs.
